Quoting [1]: "Emacs can now be compiled with file notification support.
This happens by default if a suitable system library is found at
build time."

The current build of Emacs appears not to have been built with file notification support (it doesn't list any notification libraries as dependencies, and a quick check with `ldd /usr/bin/emacs` shows no linking with any).
Also, while I was editing a PKGBUILD for an svn package (thanks for the handy emacs-pkgbuild-mode btw :-) ), after building the package with makepkg, I did not receive any notification when makepkg updated $pkgver inside the PKGBUILD.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
